** New release: One and two is now available ! **
Dear friends, here is my brand new self-released CDr. It is called "One and two", contains three parts recorded over the month of September this year.
I have been exploring some of the tonal and textural features of my instruments (prepared acoustic guitar, cello and soprano saxophone), in the context of improvisations (more on the process in the previous post). Sounds from the outside also sneaked in for the best (especially on the very field recording-esque third part, g), and helped me creating this original sound environment. Listen to an excerpt of the first part of the record, gc2.

been such a long time...
no post for more than 2 years...I have been quite busy in the meantime though: a couple of shows in the winter 2004-05, one involving a field recoding based composition that ended up on the very limited edition of the CD-r version of the previously mentioned mp3 release (see prev post), the over one involving a guitar and live processing through the laptop. In the same time i had been working on a field recording based sound installation presented at the first and only "Intromission" night. This one should have had involved some soldering and many pairs of headphones, although this was without planning with my lack of abilities for this kind of things. I reckon it was better this way, a very sutle installation!
The very marking bit is that instruments progressively crept in and took over the computer in my practice. Spring 2005 saw me playing guitar and percussions with The Vitamin B12 (click here). Then the summer have been quite thoughfull, although productive. By the end of it i was a converted improviser on the guitar and started a duo project with Richard Herring (another ex-Brightonian, as we have both relocated to Bristol now) who plays soprano saxophone, alto clarinet, guitar and piano. In the same time i acquired a soprano saxophone too and a cello. All these instruments could be heard, with various degree of abstraction/detournement, on the "Onde" demo, of which a track should follow soon on this page.
In the begining of the year 2006 i started working on a new project. I had already been working on a similar one a year before or so, i was improvising one track with a guitar or a snare drum, than recording as a response a second improvisation while listening to the first one. Then the two (or sometimes three) takes would be mixed down together without any more editing than splicing out a slow start or a lousy ending. I was improvising with myself, the same person twice, in the same time two distinct persons, as no-one ever the same. This is how i started thinking of my first self released record, "one and two".
